Pesto provides endless opportunity to improvise as cooks can recombine any leaf, nut and cheese with a glug of EVOO and garlic. Kale, Walnuts and pecorino? Yum. Beet greens, hazelnuts and goat’s feta? Boom. Well, why not Cannabis. Sous Weed (an awesome blog) puts a little extra green in their pesto using fresh leaves to elevate your next ribeye or grilled veggies.

One of our favorite products in America is Fat Toad Farm Goat’s Milk Caramel and it has a lot to do with the fact that grassiness of the goat milk creates an herbaceous depth to offset the sweetness of the candy. Same thing going on here, Cannabis helps cut the rich caramels and add a new dimension.
